Job: Communications and content coordinator, remote, The Engine Room

Communications and content coordinator

  • Location: Remote
  • Hours of work: Full-time (40 hours per week)
  • Salary range: 42,000 – 54,000 USD per year depending on skills, experience and location
  • Ideal start date: September 1
  • Application deadline: rolling application (we will review applications as we receive them and may make a selection at any time)

About The Engine Room

The Engine Room supports social change organisations to make the most of data and technology to increase their impact. Throughout our research, community and direct support work, we work across a range of social change sectors to identify and discuss new opportunities that data and technology present.

The Engine Room works in a distributed team of 16 people based in 10 countries, and we’re open and collaborative in our approach. We think it’s key to build the capacity of local and national organisations so that they can take control of their own innovation with data and technology. We care about privacy and security online, but also think that responsible approaches to transparency are essential. We are allergic to hype: we believe in people, not technology. But we think that data and tech have the capacity to dramatically increase social change organisations’ effectiveness. The Engine Room aims to help make that happen.

About The Role

Communications is a core part of our work. We are looking for a diligent, curious person who’s interested in working with our team to carry out complex projects with humility, humour, and creativity. As with every role in our distributed team, it’s critical that the communications and content coordinator is organised, motivated, self-aware and accountable.

If you like learning about diverse subject areas, facilitating great comms with colleagues working across many areas of expertise, and are passionate about making complex issues easy to understand, this is the role for you.

You will maintain and drive our online presence across our website, social media, emails and publications. You will help shape our tone and keep it consistent, ensuring that we achieve our goal of helping activists and social change organisations make the most of technology and data in their work. As a support organisation, we want to use the platform we have to elevate the work of our partners and peers, and use our work to inform organisations in the same fields. It’s less about name recognition, and more about creating an environment for ideas to spread and flourish…
